I rage for the lies and cover-up perpetrated by the Bush administration to get us into this war and keep us there.  I cry for the daily death toll and wounded toll of our troops.  The only way to stop Bush and his administration from continuing his suicide mission is to begin impeachment hearings on the President.  We could start with A.G. Gonzales or V.P. Cheney.  But this administration is rotten from the core so we need to start with President Bush.  If we don’t impeach, it makes it easier for the next Bush.  Practice makes perfect…

Rosie O’Donnell fascinates me.  It’s not a star struck thing, I don’t get star struck, it’s a humor thing.  Her blog is getting funnier and funnier.  Yes, she discusses serious issues on her blog and on the VIEW.  But her humor invariably shines through, unless she’s pissed.  I can relate to that.  Sometimes I get so mad about politics that I could tell a joke.

The other day at the Cingular Store I called a young woman a “bitch”.  I about lost my breath.  I apologized and she wouldn’t accept it.  She told me I was a typical man. 

In the 1970s I was a “male feminist” before those two words were used together.  (You never hear them anymore, but that’s another entry.)  I never used the word “bitch” in those days.  Over the years, “bitch” has become more prevalent.  I admit I sometimes think the word “bitch” but I rarely say it out loud.  That’s why the other day at the Cingular Store came as such a surprise to me.  I can’t get the incident off my mind, so I decided to write about it, here. 

The Word “faggot”

Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

I’ve heard the word “faggot” shouted at people on the street from hostile passersby three times during the last week.  I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 11 years.  Only once did I hear “faggot” lobbed at someone in hate during that time.  Until this week.  We all know “faggot”, the word, has been in the news.  What hasn’t been in the news are the emotions behind the word “faggot”.  If you hear someone you know use the word “faggot”, ask them what they are thinking about when they use the word “faggot”.  Or kick their ass.  

Baby Boomers

Monday, March 12th, 2007

It is obvious to me that baby boomers aren’t doing a very good job of governing.  And I’m a baby boomer.  Boomers are too selfish and vain and they’re great liars.  It’s how they were raised.  Most Boomers had no goals when they were young.  How could they, the 60s were spent fighting a war that couldn’t be won?  Then the 70s came along and who cared about goals?  The 70s were about dreams, wet and otherwise.  I’m cynical but I’m not dead.

I’m back to blogging again, thanks to Deb.  I lost all of 2006 during the server switch.  This first entry is going to be short, so…  welcome back, this kind of snafu will never happen again on my blog because I have Deb in my corner.
